In a hydropower project a turbine has a head of 50 m. The discharge in the feeding penstock is 3 m3/s. If a head loss of 5 m takes place due to losses, and a power of 1000 kW is extracted, the residual head downstream of the turbine is
  • a)
    45 m
  • b)
    10.95 m
  • c)
    15.95 m
  • d)
    20.95 m
